In November 2014, the Theatre Royal commissioned Inside Out Time Lapse Productions to produce a three minute film to commemorate the theatre’s 150th year. We were given exclusive access behind the scenes and shot many hours of footage from November 2014 to February 2015. Time lapse cameras were installed backstage to give an insight into the massive operation involved in unloading, building and lighting each production. Visiting companies gave exclusive access to their artists in rehearsal, in make-up and waiting in the wings, sometimes right up to the curtain rising. Audiences were also filmed as they moved around the foyers and watched from their seats during performances.
